committee. thank you for joining us. what's your response to steny hoier? >> i think the american people have rejected this approach and rejected the bill. it's been shown in poll after poll. that's why we need to scrap the bill. let's get back to the table and put together a good step by step approach that the american people approve. you know, this is very, very complicated. and as a physician, i can tell you there are many, many problems with the bill. >> but, of course, in our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, the american people are equally divided, evenly divided, 45%, 46% wanting it passed, not wanting it passed. so it's not a total rejection. it's that people really are split down the middle. >> well, that's one poll. there are a number of other polls that show a significant split. keep in mind there are margins of error in these polls. you know, really, if you really get out there and speak to people across this country and certainly back in my home state, they're overwhelmingly rejecting the approach taken by speaker pelosi and the bill itself.
